...Pravda, historically the organ of the USSR Communist Party, now an online paper of the same, sinister-storied name, can comment on the stunning lack of media oxygen given to further evidence, as marshaled by Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio and his Cold Case Posse, that President Obama is an identity thief.
From, yes, Pravda:
A singularly remarkable event has taken place in the United States of America. This event occurred in Arizona on March 1st and was an earth shattering revelation.
A long awaited press conference was given by Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio, a five time elected Sheriff, which should have made national and international headlines. Arpaio's credentials include serving in the United States Army from 1950 to 1953, service as a federal narcotics agent serving in countries all over the world with the U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA), and served as the head of the Arizona DEA. Without doubt, this is a serious Law Enforcement Officer, not one to be taken in by tin-foil-hat wearing loons.
Yet, in the five days since his revelations there has been little in the way of serious reporting on the findings he presented in his presser. With 6 short videos, the Sheriff and his team presented a devastating case, one the tame US press is apparently unable to report. ...
Not absolutely entirely, of course. WND.com leads the press by a mile on this case; American Thinker leads the blogs. But the silence , if true, on the Biggest Case of Fraud in World History is a woeful testament to the depths to which we have fallen as a remnant republic, content to take the Narrative from Authority, rather than judge the evidence for ourselves. This widespread attitude is no way to remain free citizens.
I have written on the subject (for example, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, and most recently here).
I have had editors spike the columns; I have been told that the matter is a "distraction." One famous conservative with a reputation for serious braininess even asked me how could there be anything to the story if Rush Limbaugh or Sean Hannity hadn't discussed it?
Suffice it to say, Rush and Sean have what I call their comfort zones. Islam, particularly when it comes to Rush, isn't in the comfort zone either, and, as I write every now and then, there's something to that jihad stuff we're missing, too.
Someday I hope we know what Obama is hiding. But we won't ever know unless we all demand of him to tell what it is.
